Listen to the Regents' Health Service Committee meeting of October 10, 2019

In case you were wondering, yours truly did not forget to archive the audio of the Regents' Health Services Committee meeting of October 10th. However, it takes time to go through the recording.

The meeting started with public comments devoted to union issues and calls for treatment of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).* Dr. Jack Stobo, EVC of the UC Health system, is retiring and was praised for his work. His replacement as of November, Dr. Carrie Byington was introduced.** Executive pay issues were discussed, including a performance bonus for Stobo. It was reported that a working group to study UC policy on affiliations with non-UC health providers had been formed. (This development likely is the result of a failure of a proposed merger with a Catholic health network that didn't provide abortions or other sex-related procedures on religious grounds.) There was discussion of plans for issuance of taxable bonds. New developments in cancer treatments were discussed. And there was discussion of financial issues facing UC-Riverside's new med center, although a new building was approved for that campus.
